Early life

Hagerty was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, the daughter of Harriet Yuellig (née Bishop), a model and singer, and Jerald William "Jerry" Hagerty, Jr., a musician. Her brother Michael Hagerty (1951–1991) was also an actor.[1][3][4][5] Her parents later divorced. Hagerty attended Indian Hill High School. She was signed as a model for Ford Models at 15 and spent summers modeling in New York City. She moved there in 1972 and worked at her brother's theater group; she also studied with actor William Hickey.


Hagerty made her off-Broadway debut in 1979, starring in Mutual Benefit Life at her brother's theater, "The Production Company". She continued appearing on stage, including starring in a Broadway version of The House of Blue Leaves. Her first film role was in All That Jazz, but her small part was cut out of the finished film. She was subsequently cast opposite Robert Hays in the parody film, Airplane!. It was released in June 1980 and became the third highest-grossing comedy in box office history at that time, behind Smokey and the Bandit (1977) and National Lampoon's Animal House (1978).[6] Airplane! was considered the first of the modern parody genre and established Hagerty as a noted comedic actress.

Hagerty spent the 1980s starring in a number of theatrical films, ranging from the well-reviewed Albert Brooks film Lost In America and Woody Allen's A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy to the badly received Beyond Therapy. Her roles often involved a naive or spaced-out character who seems to be unaware of whatever chaos was surrounding her, as exemplified in Airplane! and its sequel, Airplane II: The Sequel. Throughout the 1990s and 2000s, Hagerty mostly appeared in made-for-television movies or supporting roles in Hollywood films, including the '90s comedies What About Bob? and Noises Off, as well as a part in the 2005 film Just Friends and 2006's She's The Man.

She was cast in the 1994 Designing Women spin-off Women of the House, but was committed to another project when filming began, so Valerie Mahaffey substituted for her in several episodes. She eventually joined the cast, filmed two episodes and resigned, handing the reins back to Mahaffey, who bowed out after one final appearance. In 2002, she appeared in the Broadway revival of Mornings at Seven. In 2007, she appeared in the CSI episode "Leapin' Lizards"; in 2011, she voiced Carol, Lois's sister, in the Family Guy episode Brothers & Sisters. She appeared as Hazel Bergeron in 2081, the film adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut's short story Harrison Bergeron. In 2013, she has appeared in a series of Old Navy commercials[7] as a winking flight attendant. Her last film was an adaptation of Ibsen's 19th century play and opened in New York in June 2014 titled A Master Builder.[2]

Personal life

Hagerty married Peter Burki in 1986; the couple began divorce proceedings in 1991. In 1999, she married Hollywood life insurance magnate and theater producer Richard Kagan.[8]
